This winter, the Christmas market which has been on Town Hall Square for the last nine years will be moving to Rotermann Square, behind the central post office and Coca-Cola Plaza cinema. The market will open on 19 November.
The new location of the market is by no means accidental – the Rotermann Quarter, an architectural pearl in the heart of Tallinn, is the perfect setting for the little huts and the Christmas tree that people are already familiar with.
The Rotermann Quarter has received a number of national and international architectural awards and is the best place to organise a Christmas market for Tallinn’s residents and visitors. Here new architecture and old traditions are juxtaposed, which will result in a fairytale Christmas world.
The market has long since become a tradition, and will be organised by the same people who have done so on Town Hall Square for the last nine years. The same good-natured Santa Claus will be there, along with his merry helpers; there will be a jam-packed entertainment programme and a variety of winter and Christmas-themed contests; the Christmas tree decorating competition will be held once again; and, for the first time in Estonia, there will be a singing Christmas tree right in the centre of Tallinn!
Rotermann Square will be adorned with around 40 Christmas huts, offering items made by Estonian handicraft specialists, Christmas gifts, food and drink. There will also be entertainment on the square on weekends.
The market will open on 19 November and close on 9 January. It will operate every day from 10:00-19:00.
The Estonian Christmas Market in the Rotermann Quarter is being organised by OÜ Jõululaat, which has organised the Christmas markets on Town Hall Square for the last nine years.
